Tasting Notes and Scores

91-93

Wine Advocate

Including fully 29% Sémillon, the 2021 Cos d'Estournel Blanc is a terrific effort from holdings in the northern Médoc. Offering up aromas of confit citrus, crisp orchard fruit, lime zest, pastry cream and freshly braked bread, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and incisive, with chalky structuring dry extract and a penetrating finish. There's no question that it's one of the Médoc's most interesting white wines.

Neal Martin

The 2021 Cos d'Estournel Blanc contains slightly more Sauvignon Blanc this year (71%); proprietor Michel Reybier told me that was because it was more successful in the vineyard. Picked between September 17 and October 9 and matured in 8% new oak, it has a lovely bouquet of citrus fruit, white peach and hints of peony on a nose that opens nicely in the glass. The palate is well balanced with a fresh, vibrant entry, and obviously more concentrated than the Pagodes, with a lively and quite weighty, phenolic finish. This has great potential.

James Suckling

This is layered and serious, with intense yet subtle notes of dried pineapple, lemon, crushed stones and shells. Salty. Long and driven with vivacity and energy. So minerally, in every sense. Grabs hold of you. 71% sauvignon blanc and 29% semillon.

Antonio Galloni

The 2021 Cos d'Estournel Blanc is fabulous. In fact, the 2021 is one of the finest vintages I can remember tasting. Readers will find a white of tremendous stature and sheer palate presence. Lemon oil, chamomile, pear, baked apple tart and light tropical accents are all amplified in this dramatic, racy white from Cos d'Estournel. I can't wait to taste this in bottle.

Jane Anson

Clear reduction on the first nose, fragrant and with grip, does a great job of unrolling slowly and hanging on, lengthening out and delivering a drip feed of liqourice, fennel and white pepper spice to accompany the citrus-dominant fruits. Impressively moreish. Harvest September 17 to October 9. 3.09ph.

The Wine Independent

A blend of 71% Sauvignon Blanc and 29% Semillon, the 2021 Cos d'Estournel Blanc needs a little swirling to reveal notes of lemongrass, fresh lime juice, and yuzu, plus suggestions of sea spray and fennel seed. The palate has an electric backbone of tension cutting through the densely packed citrus and mineral layers, finishing with fantastic length and purity.
